The Icebook is a pop-up book that comes to life, as if by magic, in front of your eyes. It could possibly be the smallest live performance in the world, a three-dimensional cinema made from paper and light. Each page unfolds into an animated miniature world, telling the story of a princess who lures a boy into the forest to warm her heart of ice.   


British artists Davy and Kristin McGuire sweep you into the heart of this fantasy world through performances for only a dozen people at a time. In the intimate setting of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, these performances will begin in the Print Studio with a brief presentation of wintry artists' books from our permanent collection. From there, each audience of ten will move on to the totally darkened Jaffe Book Arts Gallery for The Icebook experience. Total time for each performance is about 40 minutes. The Icebook is suitable for ages 10 and above.

Davy and Kristin McGuire are an award winning director/designer couple whose projects range from music videos, animation films and installations to live theater shows, dance performances, video projections and everything in between. Their client list includes Cirque de Soleil, Canal+, The Guillemots, Partizan and Aardman. Their productions have been televised in Japan and on Canal+ in France. The Icebook has been performed to sold out audiences throughout Europe and in India. Their performances at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts are the North American debut of this fantastic work, and in 2013 the McGuires plan to take it to Japan and Australia.
